Give A Listen -- A My Town Monday post

No time to research and write a proper My Town Monday post, so instead give this song a listen. It's from one of my favorites, Charlie Robison and it at least mention Amarillo in the lyrics. Charlie served as one of the judges on the reality show Nashville Star a few years back and he is one of the greats in the Texas music scene.

As usual, links to other My Town Mondayers will be added below.

10 Flatland Boogie [1996].wma - Charlie Robison

Charlie puts on one heck of a live show so if you have a chance to make it to any of these places I urge you to do so.

***If you can't get the music to play here is a direct link to the location I found this song.***

Dang...the music wouldn't play for me. I'll have to see if I can find it elsewhere in cyberspace.

debra said...

Good old country music---nice for a windy Sunday morning in NE Ohio.
My post is up, Travis.

Vodka Mom said...

I can't get the music to work, either. But I'm good at searching the internet, so I'll let you know if I find it! thanks, Travis.

Charles Gramlich said...

Amarillo and country music go together like biscuits and gravy.

Cloudia said...

Travis: I'm dreamin` of Texas, Guitars & Lonestar. Thanks for the free trip ;-)

I’m another who can’t get the music to play.

But I now have the only song I know about Amarillo playing in my head: “Is this the way to Amarillo, every night I’ve been hugging my pillow. Dreaming dreams of Amarillo, where sweet Maria waits for me…” :)

Great music! Thanks for sharing.

My post is up, but I'm wondering if we are going to change this to MTS?

debra said...

or MTM early edition :-)

Phats said...

Wasn't he married to a Dixe Chick? I believe they recently got divorced?

Shauna Roberts said...

I'll come back to listen when I don't have Bach blaring from the boombox. I don't think the two would mix well.

pattinase (abbott) said...

Me, too. Up at eleven.

Clair D. said...

Ack-- country music! =P

Anyway, my MTM is up.

Barbara Martin said...

Country music is nice to listen to for a change.

My MTM post will be up shortly after midnight.

Barrie said...

My post is set to publish at midnight. Oooooh. It's a Halloween post. And, uh, Charles, love your comment here!

Reb said...

I don't mind good country music..uh, wait, is that an oxymoron? ;) I kid, really I do like some country music.

Part 3 is up.

DrillerAA said...

OU/Nebraska, it just ain't the same anymore. Since they became the Big 12 and moved Nebraska to the north, we don't get to play each other much.
Nebraska has fallen on some hard times and now the conference championship isn't at stake either. I do hope your Huskers return to the top of the North soon.

Junosmom said...

Travis, My MTM post is up. I'll have to go back to listen when dd isn't playing the piano in my ear :-) or get headphones I guess.

Terrie Farley Moran said...


Laura has a MTM post up ove at Women of Mystery.

Love country music.


Travis Erwin said...

I'm going to try and do better in responding to comments.

I'm sorry the music didn't work for everyone. Yes Charlie was married to one of the Dixie Chicks but I wasn't aware they'd divorced.

I like to get my MTM post up on Sunday so I can concentrate on reading the other posts and getting the links up on Monday. I have had to post earlier than normal for the last couple of months since I have been coaching flag football every Sunday afternoon.

And I agree Charles, great analogy.

Happy belated anniversary!

Karen Fisher-Alaniz said...

Ah, that's how you all do it. I'm a little slow, I guess. So you set it to post a little after midnight huh? I thought you were all just so much faster than I. Well, I'm also in Pacific time, so at a disadvantage anyway I guess.

So anyway- My post is up. Fun, fun, and more fun! ~Karen

Junosmom said...

I've learned at "trick" that I hope Travis doesn't mind that I share. If you post something to publish right now, it will post. Then, you can go back and edit that post (under "options"), setting the date to the next day at any time you want (maybe any day, I've not tried it). Then republish. It will still show up on your blog, giving the next day's date and time rather than being scheduled. So those of you on the west coast can set it to allow for the time difference.

Jenn Jilks said...

My town is being over run with wildlife! We all have to batten down the hatches for storms and invasion!
My post includes video, just for a change!

Karen Fisher-Alaniz said...

Thanks nnairada! So if I post at 12:01 pacific time on Monday, it won't adjust itself? Hmmm... ~K

Karen Fisher-Alaniz said...

Whoops-that was obviously supposed to be to Junosmom. ~K

Junosmom said...

Karen, I'm looking at your comment which just showed up. It says 5:26 p.m. I noticed it at 6:30 p.m. Kentucky time (est) and it says 5:26 p.m. I would guess it is 3:30 pst. That means when you post to Travis' blog, the recorded time is on his time, one hour behind me. Your blog is probably set to pst, isn't it? So if you post at Midnight pst, will it not show up on my reader at 3 a.m.? I don't know for sure, but it can't show up before you post it, lol.

My point is that you can set it to look like it posted on Sunday but it still is Saturday. curious, isn't it?

Not too shabby but my favorite song about Amarillo is by George Strait.
